Writing Masterclass

Writing Masterclass - "Get Writing" workshop for New Writers - Fiction.

Saturday 2 June 10.00am - 4.00pm

In this all day workshop, award winning author Nicole Hayes will help you uncover what you need to write a story. By setting out the basics of storytelling in small, concentrated parts, Nicole will offer strategies and processes to help you write your story — whether you know what that story is yet or not! Drawing on more than ten years’ experience running writing workshops and having authored five published books, Nicole will provide instruction on craft and technique, guided exercises and workshopping, plus "wild writing" within a group of fellow aspiring writers. All this and lunch!

On the day you will need writing instruments – either notebook, pens and/or laptop. If you’ve got some ideas or have started to write, you might want to bring that too. Everything else will be provided.  Workshop fees include morning tea, lunch, and workshop handouts.

Early Bird price $200.00 - FULL PAYMENT by April 20.

Regular price $225.00 - PAYMENT from April 21 and thereafter.

PLEASE NOTE: Cancellation policy — An administration fee of $50 will be charged if a participant cancels before April 30 . There will be no refunds after May 20. In the case of insufficient registrations, I reserve the right to cancel the event, in which case a full refund will be provided.
